Kent Narrows Map Mural
The members of Crossroads Community, Inc. are spearheading
our exciting new community arts project as we work towards the creation of a huge 6’ x 32’ mural featuring the Kent Narrows Shantytowns.
This map represents the waterfront along the Narrows circa 1930.
The purpose of this painting is to figure out where all the roads,
shucking houses, shanties, stores, music halls and the rest
of the extensive community existed from about 1930 until 1990.
The next step is a painting of the area on a series of portable panels
measuring a total of 32’ in length and 6’ in height that will be installed
under the 301/50 bridge in late 2024.
It’s a BIG project!
For this part of the project we used a scaling process to expand the image from a NOAA chart to a 4’ x 8’ panel. We will be working on this map across the QAC community as we recreate an important part of our local maritime heritage.
Follow our Facebook page to see where and when we'll be painting.
